I hate schlock. I really do. But for some reason, I’m a sucker for it when it’s baseball schlock. Well, to a point. Some of the opening voice-over was way too precious. But I loved seeing the greats again and seeing 3 Boston players unveil the 9 in left field honoring Ted Williams.
On the other hand, Anastacia was just awful. She does everything I was always taught not to do when singing. And she got the words wrong as well. Come on, it’s the national anthem. We all know the words. “Gave truth through the night?” Come ON! If you’re going to sing before a national audience, learn the words already!
